Spartan Central

Your one stop site for all the needs of UNCG Spartans.

Students who are not admitted to a degree program at UNCG may need to follow a different registration process. These student types include:

  • Visiting students taking courses on a semester-by-semester basis, not pursuing a UNCG degree.
  • Individuals who wish to audit a course (attend courses without receiving course credits).
  • Students attending a nearby institution cross-registering at UNCG through the Greater Greensboro Consortium.
  • Students from select NC universities taking courses through the Inter-Institutional Program. 

Visiting students 

Non degree-seeking students may wish to take courses at UNCG for transfer elsewhere. These students must apply as visiting students. Visiting students follow later registration dates and do not need to go through the same advising process as other students. Visiting students can obtain more information from Undergraduate Admissions or The Graduate School.

Inter-Institutional students 

The Inter-Institutional program is designed to expand the course options available to degree-seeking students currently enrolled in the six colleges and universities listed below:

  • Duke University
  • North Carolina Central University 
  • North Carolina State University

  • UNC Chapel Hill 
  • UNC Charlotte
  • UNC Greensboro

If you’re interested in taking an online course through one of the UNC system schools consult The University of North Carolina Online website, for a list of available courses and to request registration.

UNCG students enrolling elsewhere

Current UNCG students who wish to enroll in courses at a participating school may obtain the necessary forms at UNCG through the Registrar’s Office or The Graduate School Office. Coursework will come into UNCG as transfer credit. It will not impact UNCG GPA and cannot be used for grade replacements.

Students must adhere to the rules of the host campus relative to withdrawal and grades. The UNCG Registrar’s Office must be notified of any courses dropped.

Students from other Inter-Institutional schools

Students from other inter-institutional schools who wish to take courses at UNCG should request approval forms at their home institution. When approved, the home institution will provide the appropriate forms to UNCG for processing. Instructions for completing registration will be provided to students when processing is complete. 

Note: Students wishing to enroll in courses in the Bryan School of Business and Economics must meet the entrance requirements required of UNCG students and provide transcripts from the home institution before they will be approved. 

Greater Greensboro Consortium students 

The Consortium program is designed to expand the course registration options available to Degree-Seeking students who are currently enrolled in one of the eight colleges and universities in the surrounding area listed below: 

  • Bennett College
  • Elon University 
  • Greensboro College 
  • Guilford College 
  • Guilford Technical Community College
